Boston Hop-on Hop-off Trolley Tour

Boston, Massachusetts

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

I would highly recommend this as you get the history/tour part but you can hop off and take a closer look. Some of the drivers were more fun than others. Our favourite was Cracker Jack. Lots of added value as you get the 2nd day free and the free harbour cruise. Many hotels are on or close to their routes so you don't need a car.

Sydney Taronga Zoo General Entry Ticket and Wild Australia Experience

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was by far the highlight of my two week stay in Australia! I absolutely LOVED it! Our keeper was fantastic! He knew everything about everything but didn't prattle on like he had memorized it all out of a book. We went and saw the koalas first. You get to go in the koala enclosure so you get awesome photo opportunities, the zoo charges about 20 to get a picture, so make sure you take your own! When we went in the koalas were unusually active and jumping tree to tree and even came down on the ground! The Taronga Zoo doesn't allow anyone to touch their koalas as it stresses them out. Our keeper took us on a mini tour to the Tasmanian devils, dingoes, kangaroos etc. He took us into the kitchen of the Nocturnal house and showed us some pretty gross dead stuff...but still interesting. We actually got to go in and pet the bilbies and echidnas. We went in with the possums and bandicoot but didn't pet anything as the bandicoot was trying to bite our toes! At the end of the tour they take you to a cafe for a tea or coffee and dessert. They also give you some small souvenirs. Overall, the best time here on my entire trip! Bring very comfortable shoes, as I was there from 10am to 4pm.

Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Day Tour from Sydney

Sydney, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
My tour was booked solid that day so they put me on another tour which had the same itinerary. It was well organized and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Featherdale Wildlife Park was great! I really enjoyed it. You get to pet the kangaroos, wallabies and koalas! I felt a little rushed as we only had an hour. I could have spent an hour in with the kangaroos but still felt I saw almost everything. In Leura,buy a sandwich just before you get back on the bus or all you'll see is one restaurant. Look in the shops first. Great shopping! By the time we got to the Blue Mountains the clouds were so thick you couldn't see anything. We didn't even bother stopping at Echo Point. I enjoyed Scenic World very much. You about an hour and a half there. I took the Katoomba Railway down which was very exhilarating! I did the shortest rain forest walk. I had bought a poncho at the shop above and very grateful. I walked very slowly and just enjoyed walking. There are sign posts that point out interesting plants and things all along the pathway. I took the cable car back up which was pointless the way the weather was. Overall, I had a wonderful time and found it was definitely worth doing! I probably would have loved it if the weather had been better! Dress warm in the mountains! A lot of people had to buy sweaters!

Sydney Pass: SEA LIFE Aquarium, Sydney Tower Eye, WILD LIFE Sydney, Sydney Harbour Cruise, and Madame Tussauds

Sydney, Australia

My Rating

My Review
Aquarium - One word Awesome! Bring comfortable shoes. Make sure you take a couple minutes at the end to sit in front of the gigantic glass wall to relax. I had the best time here so my rating is quite high!

Wildlife World - A great way to make sure you see all of Australia's strange and wonderful creatures! I spent a lot of time here.

Sydney Tower and Oz Trek - Not really all that amazing. You get a horrible view of the Opera House so don't have high expectations. I don't think I would have felt like I missed anything if I didn't go up. Oz Trek was kinda cool but aimed more for children.

Sydney Harbour Cruise - Fun if you haven't already used the ferry 20 times. Useful information on the hop on hop off tour. A great way to get around.

Darling Harbour - Don't take the "People-Mover Train" it is a waste of money! All you do is watch people waking the same pace as you! Overall I think I would have been fine with just Wildlife World and the Aquarium.
